I have a multiple step process.
Step #1…create a new thing & saving a few fields to the newly created record.
Step #2…I would like to ‘make changes to the thing’ I JUST created in Step#1
How can I capture the unique ID of the thing I created in Step #1, and carry it into Step #2 SO I can edit that very same thing?
How do I save the unique ID of the new thing I just created somewhere so I can use it to ‘make changes’ to that record?
No need, just refer to the step 1 thing in step 2’s workflow.
Yes…this is my question.
Dow do I refer the that specific step#1 thing I just created?
When you “make a change to a thing”, the “result of step X” is available as a dynamic option. See below:
I am trying to do exactly this, but I don’t see the option you mention above. What I see is this:
What am I doing wrong?
This does seem to work if you need to refer to an earlier step in the same event but what if you want to refer to a step in a different event?
You mean “workflow”? There’s no “result of step” from a previous workflow. Unless of course you SAVE that result somewhere (as in a custom state).
So: Need to reuse something? Save it somewhere.
So I create a thing in one workflow when a button is clicked. And in another workflow on the same page (different button is clicked) I need to go back and update some fields in the first thing that was created.
You wanna store something? Just freaking store it.
